I did quite a fair bit of hauling in September. :p (Sham if you're reading this, it makes me very happy, like how happy a fat kid gets when you bring him to a candy store) So i decided to wait till the end of the month to post up, well i'm a couple of days late, but here's my damage!
So if you're not already suscribed to the Pixiwoo sisters on YouTube, what are you waiting for? Hop along now! So anyways, one of the sisters, Samantha Chapman, created the amazing brushes that everyone has been talking about, Real Techniques and they've been using it constantly in their videos. The one brush that caught my eye the most was the Deluxe Crease Brush which, they have been using for concealer! I loved how flawless it left them and knew right away i had to get them! (Funny because i usually would reach for foundation/blush/stippling brushes first!)
(L-R: Deluxe Crease Brush, Base Shadow Brush, Accent Brush, Eyeliner Brush & Eyebrow Brush)
I also picked up some MAC goodies, a concealer, Moisture Cover in NW20, which i don't particularly think is great. My under eye lines still seems to find a way to show. If you have a good concealer to reccommend, please do tell! I'd be so grateful! Next is a paintpot. I really wanted Painterly but it was sold out so i picked something that was sorta nude-ish too but with shimmer. MAC Bare Study Paintpot. It's BEAUTIFUL! It's stated as a soft beige with gold pearl with a frost finish on maccosmetics.com
Some mascaras next. My sis in law went to one of the private sales and picked this up for me. Been dying to try this Lancome's Hypnose and so glad i got this for just $50! What a steal! Been obsessed with this mascara! Also picked up Clinique's Bottom Lash Mascara from a spree and got it for about $18 after shipping and conversion. Personally, not an item i will repurchase.) Yeah, the wand is tiny and pretty cute. But i could do the same job with a normal mascara wand. -___-
Picture on the right is a comparison of Lancome's Hypnose wand and Clinique's Bottom Lash wand. Cute ain't it!
Lastly, some Sleek palettes. Sleek has been much talked about for their great pricing as well as fantastic payoff when it comes to colour. My first palette was from the Avoir La Peche collection. In fact i got both the palette, Paraguaya, as well as the blush, Pan Tao. So when i saw these 2 palettes launched, i quickly placed an order for them!
My absolute favourite, as many others has loved too, Sleek's Oh So Special palette. With more matte shades this time round, this was right up my alley. :D It's a great everyday palette so if you're looking to invest in a good inexpensive palette, i'd highly reccomend this!
And finally, to close the haulin' i did, Sleek's Monaco palette. Stunning shades! I love how they're bright and i've always believed, by wearing bright colours, you'll feel happy! :) I absolutely adore Aquamarine. Beautiful blue-ish green shade that's totally matte.
I wore bamboo & aquamarine out the other day with a coral lip. So nice and bright! Very summer-ish! (it's practically summer all year round here in Singapore.) Love the combo. Till the next one, have an awesome Sunday ahead! :D
